The issue: When the Jato gets warmed up it will do one of two things eventually: 1. It will stall when letting off the throttle after...

    Has anyone used the Klinik air filter yet?

    Vintage Nitro Buggy Identification (Help Needed)

    I bought this today at a swap meet because it is interesting and in really good shape for something I assume was made in the 1970s. Can anyone help me identify the brand and model? There are no markings on it that I can find. The tub is aluminum as are the suspension components, transmission...

    Hey guys, Let's just start off by saying I'm a newbie to the max, my new-to-me Traxxas Revo 3.3 is my first (running, barely) RC truck.

    1980s GV tornado and magnum .21 running video

    Its runs! I hate the lsn (like the ones in the planes ) but it runs nice. I can't get it full throttle as it looks like it isnt engaging the spur fast enough/at all. Very happy my little "project" if it could even be called that. I also used the futaba magnum junior that came with it

    Weird that this engine doesn't have rings on it?

    Its a magnum .21 that was bought before the 90s it was made by thunder tiger. Just thought i'd be fun to show off some old engine parts

    Dynamite Big Red pull start after-market replacement

    The one that comes with it is terrible to say the least. I like the engine but that pull start design is atrocious. I break this pull start so quickly because a metal piece connects to the OWB hex. The metal piece strips the plastic pull start. This is the engine in case anyone's wondering...

    Is anyone always worried that you're running lean all the time?

    Even though they have all the signs that its just right ( or slightly rich ). I need reassurance that I'm not the only one who thinks of this constantly

    Savage Nitro brake not engaging when pressing the brake

    It's fun but I don't have brakes. I'm lazy and I don't feel like taking the whole brake, transmission and stuff etc. off my vehicle. Basically the brake linkage doesn't press the pad/compress it. The servo moves it. If you need me to provide video and/or photos I will provide them but at the...
